Highway 23 Construction Update
07/24/2009 - 11:00 AM
Road Construction continues in downtown Saint Cloud as crews work to rebuild sections of Highway 23 and get a new bridge up by late fall. Here are the latest road updates:
Washington Memorial Drive, south of Highway 23, will close to traffic on Monday. Drivers will be detoured onto 14th Avenue. That closure is expected to last for about 2 weeks.
The South Side of 7th avenue and Highway 23 remains closed to traffic as crews work in the intersection. Traffic is being detoured to the 5th Avenue intersection.
Grading work on the northbound lanes of 9th avenue, south of the bridge, and on Highway 23 from the on and off ramps to 6th avenue is now done.
Highway 23 was closed from Wilson Avenue to Lincoln Avenue on Monday so crews could re-build the Wilson Avenue intersection. Drivers are being detoured onto Lincoln Avenue to 1st Street North.
Work continues on the bridge as well. Crews have finished decking the main bridge span over the river. They'll soon start working on retaining walls on the east side of the river.
